        • Editorial Notes

          • [Previously stated to be "Not same as Barratt, Walter Augustus, 1873-1947" but the evidence below suggests that they are the same person and that a "William" Augustus Barratt is a mistake]
          • [Up to about 1900 appears to have written as W. Augustus Barratt, and thereafter mostly as simply Augustus Barratt]
